Runway Inspired - Maxi Skirt

This outfit by Carlos Miele provides great inspiration for a hijab-friendly outfit. The model here wears a long sleeved blazer with the sleeves pushed up. I find this quite annoying though, so I've use a short sleeved black jacket instead, layered over a grey jumper. I also found this unusual tiered skirt from Uttam Direct which I think makes the whole look more suited to daytime, as opposed to eveningwear. Add some high court shoes and a metallic shoulder bag to accessorize:



Navy cord layered maxi skirt £31.95, Uttam Direct; black short sleeve jacket £35; cobalt peep t-bar shoes £30; grey roll neck jumper £15; pewter ring and stud bowler £18, all Dorothy Perkins; black pashmina £2.60, Pinz Pinz Pinz.

MashAllah you are very creative Jana, but as you see many people from the US wanna purchase these items but can't, I think you should create some for the US and charge us a fee I know I will be the first one to pay. You know who this is if you read my e-mail PLEASE Jana create some for the US.
